Endorsements: outsourced drafting services

Why outsource your endorsement drafting?

Incorrectly drafted endorsements are often the cause of unintended claims outcomes, customer dissatisfaction and in some cases regulatory issues. Experience and feedback from clients shows that underwriters often spend a significant amount of time drafting endorsements; time that could be more productively spent underwriting and winning new business. The approach of individual underwriters drafting endorsements can also lead to an inconsistency in the style, content and quality approach, which can cause customer confusion.
